just spotted this

the sad thing is the reading was taken from the flywheel :o
I don't know why the reading is so low, my clutch is slipping so I don't know if this would of effected the set up or out put of the car on the rollers

I thing I have learnt from rolling roads is that there all so different
first rolling road I went on was a 1 drum roller (where the back wheel sits on top of the roller)
car made 155rwhp with fueling problem and no camcon

car made 188rwhp with fueling sorted and camcon fitted and tuned, this was done on a hub mounted system

car made 144rwhp with 174 at the fly on 2 drum roller system don't know why maybe what I said above, car was running a bit lean below 4000rpm but thats all

I've got a new uprated Single plate clutch on order and 4.5 final drive kit
once these have been fitted I've got an apexi power fc to be installed
then it'll be mapping time, I see no reason why it shouldn't be above 200rwhp fingers crossed

then once mapped I'm gonna visit my 2 local RR and do some power runs and see what they come up with

there so many things that are different in each set up so I'm sure they will all give different figures

on you RR day it looks like that you've almost lost 50hp in transmission lose, on my poor RR day I only lost 30hp through transmission

I don't believe that you lose 25% of your power through transmission,
no way!!!

all I can say is when modding always use the same rollers and the most important figure is what is at the rear wheels as there's no good way of measuring the loses

Thanks for the info Robin, When we had the rolling road, the main guy said that he wouldnt recommend a camcon, He says adjusting the vvti settings is just asking for trouble. He said your better off doing all the airflow mods you planned and then fit an Apexi Neo and get it tuned in on a dyno. Whats your opinion on this?

I never looked into the Neo, so not sure what can be done with this unit

you can adjust your fueling with the camcon so that will sort out any of the breathing mods so to speak
then you can adjust the exhaust cam to give you a bit more torque which is what we're all after

what can be done with the Neo ???

From what i can gather these are the only settings you can change.
* * Air map
* * Air map graph
* * Throttle point
* * Deceleration air
* * VTEC control
* * VTEC unmatch

So overall Robin with all the mods you have fitted, hows the fuel consumption going on yours? Is there a sizeable difference? Was going to get a camcon but cant get anyone to tune it in over here. Maybe a trip to TDI is in order!

I done a 600 mile round trip in the tezza on saturday and she was about 30mpg on mainly motorways and A roads and cruising at a steady speed

when I'm bombing about town I get about 25mpg maybe

and when I put it in drink mode can get it down to about 20 mpg
